FCC STATEMENT
This phone is Hearing Aid compatible.
Your phone complies with Part 68 of FCC
Rules. You must, upon request, provide the
FCC registration number and the REN to
your telephone company. Both numbers are
on the bottom of the phone.
Note: You must not connect your phone to:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key telephone systems
We have designed your phone to conform to
federal regulations, and you can connect it to
most telephone lines. However, each phone
(and each device, such as an answering machine) that you connect to the telephone line
draws power from the telephone line. We refer to this power draw as the device's ringer
equivalence number, or REN on the bottom
of your phone.
If you use more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all of the RENs. If the
total is more than five (three in rural areas),
your telephones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the
line.
In the unlikely event that your phone causes
problems on the phone line, the phone company can temporarily discontinue your service. If this happens, the phone company
attempts to notify you in advance. If advance
notice is not practical, the phone company
notifies you as soon as possible and advises
you of your right to file a complaint with the
FCC.
Also, the phone company can make changes
to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the operation of this
telephone. The telephone company notifies
you of these changes in advance, so you can
take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.
THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
This equipment has been tested and found
to comply with the limits for a Class B digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instructions,
may cause harmful interference to radio
communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one
or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or
antenna.
relocate
receiving
• Increase the separation between the
equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on
a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.

Read This Before Installation
• Consult your local RadioShack store or
an experienced radio/TV technician for
help.
• If you cannot eliminate the interference,
the FCC requires that you stop using
your phone.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by RadioShack may cause interference and void the user’s authority to operate
the equipment.
LIGHTNING
Your telephone has built-in protection circuits
to reduce the risk of damage from surges in
telephone line and power line current. These
protection circuits meet or exceed the FCC
requirements. However, lightning striking the
telephone or power lines can damage your
telephone.
Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has severe
electrical storms, we suggest that you unplug
your phone when storms approach to reduce
the possibility of damage.

ˆ Troubleshooting
We do not expect you have any problems with your Two Line Phone, but if you do, try these
suggestions.
Problem
Suggestions
No dial tone
Be sure you pressed down the correct LINE.
Check that the phone line and handset cords are
securely connected.
Line 1 works, but Line 2 does not
Be sure you pressed down the correct LINE.
Check that the line cord is correctly connected to an
RJ14C jack. (RJ14C jacks normally have four visible
wire contacts.)
Check that the batteries are installed. If the batteries
are not installed for Line 2, its indicator will not work.
Low volume or unusual sounds
Someone has picked up another phone on the same
line. Hang up the other phone.
If you still have problems, disconnect the phone. If other phones on the same line work properly, the fault is in this phone or its installation. If you cannot find the problem, take the phone to
your local RadioShack store for assistance.
CARE
Keep the phone dry; if it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Use and store the phone only in normal temperature environments. Handle the phone carefully; do not drop it. Keep the phone
away from dust and dirt, and wipe it with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.
Modifying or tampering with the phone’s internal components can cause a malfunction and
might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your phone is not
performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance. If the trouble is
affecting the telephone lines, the phone company can ask you to disconnect your phone until
you have resolved the problem.
